With dozens of diners filing in at every meal, Kepos Street Kitchen was bound to expand sooner or later. And now the time has come — restaurant owner-chef Michael Rantissi has opened a second incarnation of his tasty eatery in the new Casba development on Danks Street in Waterloo.
Just around the corner from its original digs, Kepos & Co sticks with the Kitchen's winning Middle Eastern theme, while also delving into some new territory. Open for lunch and dinner every day bar Monday (and brunch on weekends), the menu balances out modern Aussie menu items like bacon and egg on brioche and duck liver pate with breakfast haloumi pide and lots of eggplant.
Since opening in November 2012, Kepos Street Kitchen has become one of Sydney's favourite restaurants. Rantissi, who grew up in Tel Aviv, combines Mediterranean cuisine with Middle Eastern influences, bringing together both classical training and new ideas.
